Navigation in the taxonomy

Click the red buttons at nodes of the top TA hierarchy to open it. Click the green button of any branch of the hierarchy to close it. Click an orange button to reopen it. Click any section marked by a blank button to access its taxonomic page.

The taxonomy is essentially the taxonomy of the Fundational Model of Anatomy. It covers the domain of Terminologia Anatomica with a superior degree of details. This means that one can expect to find all anatomical entities of TA, but other entities are also present in the original FMA ontology. At no point the here presented taxonomy pretends to cover to whole FMA model: we are here limited to a subset. If necessary, the hyperlinks to the FMA implementation provides a way to compare the contents.

Due to the fact that the TNA has been published in 2022, representing a considerable gap of scientific developments relatively to the original FMA publication, it has been necessary to create new entries in the taxonomy and to modify a number of existing entities. However, the authors of TNA have limited the number of changes to what was strictly necessary. These possible changes are visible explicitely on the Unit Pages.

The part of the taxonomy on non-physical entities is not related to the FMA, but is an original development of TA. Three main sections are presented: 1) a taxonomy of the relations implied in the terminology; 2) a taxonomy of the vocabulary of the terminology; 3) a taxonomy of the representation terms or strings in use for the interface of the terminology, especially the website.

Not all links on this page are satisfied and others open partially filled lists. Sorry for the inconvenience. These lists will we completed in due time.

The multilingual presentation of the taxonomy is a foreseen capability, but its implementation may be delayed.
